The Model Tenancy Agreement is the Government’s suggested contract for assured shorthold tenancies in the private rented sector. It is a publicly available template which landlords and tenants can choose to use to agree a tenancy, although they are not obligated to do so.

The Government does not collect data on the proportion of landlords using current or previous versions of the Model Tenancy Agreement.
